Custom WorkFlow Activities in SharePoint Designer

Posted by Clayton James on September 10, 2007

I have been doing some research in creating custom workflow activities and then using them from SharePoint Designer. If you are looking to do the same then these are the places you will need to look at first.

Great post from the SPD team explaining all concepts and what is required.

Great example in the SDK

 

Open and build the ECMActivites Visual Studio solution and then follow the steps in the above URL.
Note: These files/solutions are installed with the WSS/MOSS SDK so if you don’t have this directory structure then you need to download and install the SDKs.

The ability to write custom WF solutions and expose them inside SPD is very powerful and another great extensible feature.

  2. May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who really knows what they are discussing online. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.
